Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The determination of the flash point was carried out according to the Pensky-Martens closed cup method (non-equilibration method). The observed flash points were 141.2 and 143.2. The mean value of the corrected flash points of the two single runs is 142.2°C.
